The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.
*NOTE* There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.
Weekly Forecast: December 14 - 20, 2014
12/14 ~ Sun (core-Self) ~trine~ Jupiter (expansion):
You should take advantage of this good energy to connect to something useful - get something solid accomplished this week after the emotional roller coaster! You may feel like your energy is low and you just want to veg-out and not think about ANYTHING, but that would be a total waste of some positive, useful energy that you could actually access and use to connect to your current goals and make some headway even. Don't sleep through this! It is an enthusiastic, optimistic energy that will open doors for you, depending on your attitude. It will allow you to see the big picture and the next necessary step toward your goal at this time. You have probably already laid some groundwork, this energy will give you a boost in the right direction - take advantage of it! Use the insights you gained earlier in the week with some of the deeper issues that arose and stand back and see the Divine Order in your life - see how all the pieces fit together to make something greater than what was there before. Sometimes it's necessary to have emotional upheavals to bring stuff to the surface and purge it. You must clear the debris in order to create a solid foundation under your dreams.
12/14 ~ Venus (love & money) ~sextile~ Neptune (dissolution of boundaries):
This energy tends to make you more in tune to the beauty around you and if not, it makes you daydream about the beauty and comfort you wish you were surrounded with. That's fine (daydreaming) within reason. You may also be more sensitive to the needs of others, creating a bond between you. Try to find a way to enjoy art of any kind, music, poetry, etc.
12/15 ~ Uranus (radical change) ~square~ Pluto (death, rebirth & transformation): (6 of 7)
These two may need a little qualifying first. Uranus has an 84-year cycle, comprised of 7-year increments (each Sign), breaking in to social cycles of 21 years (square) and 42 years (opposition) as well. Pluto has a 248-year cycle, and spends 11-33 years in each Sign, which comes in waves apparently, but reminds us that "Transformation takes as long as it takes!" Uranus is considered the *Change Agent* ~ while Pluto represents the ultimate (and permanent) transformation. However, they operate considerably differently. Pluto works very slowly, over long periods of time and behind the scenes, exerting its strongest influence from the hidden realms. Uranus works with lightning speed, change in an instant, sudden illumination and life is never the same again. They are getting together in a 90-degree angle (square), which will ultimately build something, but not before the complete destruction of that which is not worthy (ending the old way), the clearing and purifying of space for new growth (preparation) and restructuring from the ground UP (rebirthing/rebuilding). Squares push us *out of comfort zone, in to new territory* ~ they help us *build* something stable and useful through the trials and adjustments, processes and sacrifices made, especially when they are actively engaged like this ... which is rare. (Uranus Squares Pluto every 50-80 years.)
On a personal level, this is a revolutionary time to be alive and all life is affected one way or another when these Collective shifts happen. Even though both of these planets are considered Collective planets, they will affect individuals with planets active in these Signs. So this go-round is primarily affecting Cancer/Capricorn and Aries/Libra energies, though no one is exempt. (You can look to the Signs for the themes and lessons.) There is a tremendous pressure from the Social and Collective realms to adjust on personal and Individual levels. This activation forces change, seemingly from outer, uncontrollable influences, but it should not be a surprise. It usually changes something you've known needed changing, but resisted and postponed. Essentially, Pluto reveals that which is already dead, done and over but very often we avoid these deeper, darker realms. "Suddenly" (Uranus) there is a catalyst (activation) for change and there is no going back! We *LIVE* during the current *Activation* which means we can set an intention to co-create. We can set an intention for ourselves and 7 Generations to come, if we like. Allow the old paradigms to drift in to your memory and focus on the incoming, new paradigm. Connect with the new life and new structures rising from the ashes, like the Phoenix reborn, of all that's gone before. It is not necessarily "good" or "bad" but it's definitely "over" so don't waste precious resources looking back. Connect to your Aries Instincts (independence) and Libra Circle (community) and anchor your fundamentals, how you provide for your Self and your family (Cancer) as well as, how you contribute to Society (Capricorn). If you do that to the best of your ability, you should come out of this 4+ year *PROCESS* on completely new ground, stabilized in the outer realms and more secure in your Center to navigate, come what may. There will be two Activations in 2012, 2013 and 2014 with the 7th and final one in 2015.
NOTE: The last time Uranus Squared Pluto was 1932-1934 with Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Cancer. The next time Uranus Squares Pluto will be 2073-2074 with Uranus in Capricorn and Pluto in Aries, the exact opposite of what we are experiencing *NOW*!

12/20 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams):
This is a great energy for being imaginative and intuitive. This is not an intellectual energy, you will have to rely on other senses, like feeling (intuition). You may be very perceptive as to what others are thinking or feeling. Try to avoid work that requires any attention to detail. Allow your creativity to flow freely without censoring what comes through you at this time. You can organize it later. This is the energy to CREATE!
12/20 ~ Venus (relationships) ~square~ Uranus (freedom):
This energy usually provokes the need for excitement or stimulation in your relationships. You may feel the urge to shake things up. Be aware of others' feelings too, they may not be in the mood for sudden change. Another expression of this energy is to get things on the table; it's a great time to really discuss things and come to an agreement or compromise. This could actually stimulate something new and different that you can share with another. Ultimately, this is a test of your flexibility in relationships. The more inflexible you are, the more disruptive this energy will be.
12/20 ~ Venus (relationships) ~conjunct~ Pluto (transformation):
This energy intensifies relationships, for better or worse. Because your values and priorities are shifting, relationships must also undergo a similar adjustment. Beware of value differences that can cause power struggles which are unproductive. Try to create circumstances that are win/win, and mutually beneficial, this will allow the relationship to EVOLVE, rather than revolve back into the cycle. It is best to use this energy to consciously transform your personal values and define how you'd like to be engaged with others in the future. You may feel really intense at this time, it is the best time to tap your Infinite creative flow and create something AMAZING!
12/20 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Uranus (breakthrough):
This energy gives you the original ideas that will fuel new action steps in your personal life. Beware of any urge to change for the sake of change. This energy, when consciously directed, can actually break you out of any ‘ruts' you've been in, and motivate you to authentic change. You have energy and ‘a-ha' moments which will propel you to a new, enlivened state of being. Think outside the box, engage in activities you've never tried and try to connect with a new and different circle of people.
